Weather > Local trends expected to continue through summer, fall

By The Staff

The wet spring and summer, that started in May, continued all the way through July, according to researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Rainfall was well above average in July according to the lab’s measurements. In Los Alamos, average rainfall was nearly double what happens during the month, with the townsite recording 6.68 inches.
At least one weather record, that has stood for 44 years, was broken on July 20, when Los Alamos received 1.44 inches of rain, far and away the most it had ever gotten on that particular day — the previous record was .95 inches set in 1971.
LANL said that through the month Los Alamos has received nearly 15.5 inches of rain this year, which is the most total rainfall since 1949 and more than 5.5 inches above normal.
David Bruggerman, a meteorologist with LANL, said the Climate Prediction Center is expecting above-average rainfall through October.
Neither Los Alamos nor White Rock were as warm last month, however, breaking a trend of warm weather seen in June.
In the first half of July, the mean maximum temperature was 3.1 degrees below average and White Rock was 4.4 degrees below average.
Lower temperatures were also expected by the Climate Prediction Center through the rest of the summer and early fall.
